THE UK Government doesn’t need to actually name instances where it has delivered for Scotland, it’s quite happy to just make them up instead.

As The National’s Stephen Paton highlighted late last year, some of the instances where the Tories down in London claim to have #deliveredforScotland truly defy belief.

When we asked the Scotland Office about that, they replied to say a “minor technical error on the Delivering for Scotland website has now been resolved”.

So, have they replaced the error page with an explanation of how Brexit has #deliveredforScotland?

No, they just deleted it altogether. Much easier that way.
